Obed Watershed Community Association (OWCA) is a Crossville, TN-based nonprofit with the mission to protect and enhance the watersheds of the Obed River and its tributaries within Cumberland County, TN through community education, creating opportunities for community research and service projects, and promoting conservation, recreation, and best management practices. It also supports activities in other nearby watersheds both within Cumberland County and surrounding counties.
This website if full of information about the watershed with many fact sheets and education powerpoints that go into great detail about the natural resources that are here. There are also pages devoted to the many projects and accomplishments that OWCA has achieved in its twelve year history. Many activities, however, change frequently, so we use our Facebook page, Obed Watershed Community Association, as a way to receive information in a more immediate way than the website. The link to our Facebook page is at the bottom of our navigation column to the left.
